I replaced my original chain with a Renolds early on. Haynes mentions being sure to refit the tensioner the right way round and that some were installed incorrectly at the factory. I’m inclined to agree that alignment is crucial. The crankshaft spacer is chamfered and also needs to be refitted the right way round.

I guess I have some issues with my center stand too.

I can sit on my bike and roll the bike off the stand now. Not have to chock the stand with the back of my boot to stop the bike skidding along. Nice.

To lazy to do anything about it.  ;)

The company better gives someone a job who knows a thing or two about stand ergonomics.

I would be removing the side case and checking or replacing the primary chain and checking the clutch retaining nut and crank  end bolt are tight as these are a known  issue.  Its a easy job to remove the side case and worth an inspection for peace of mind . You can then also inspect the chain tensioner .
